The 2017 Rosé is made with predominately Pinot Noir and grown in West Kelowna and Lake Country. We harvest the grapes specifically for Rosé, meaning that we pick them earlier than we would if we were making red wine. This results in a lighter wine with more freshness. At the winery we crush the grapes and hold them in a tank for 6 hours. As soon as the juice takes on a light pink hue, we press it and ferment it cool to preserve the lovely berry and floral aromas.
The bouquet has aromas of strawberry, cranberry, grapefruit and rose petals. The palate is rich and full, presenting abundant fruit flavor and a touch of minerality on the finish.

89 Points: “This perfectly fresh, light pink rosé that blends 85/25 pinot noir / zweigelt is grown in West Kelowna and Lake Country. The harvest of these grapes are specific to rosé: earlier and at higher acidity. The style is juicy, clean and floral with rich red fruit and mineral notes; think strawberries, grapefruit and cranberries. Despite some healthy acidity it finishes just off-dry with 8.5 grams of residual sugar. A warm patio is the best match all summer. Super value.” - Anthony Gismondi, June 2018
